I am running a query to dump some rows and I made the rows comma delimited like this
select col1||','||col2||','|| ....
from table

I set lines 5000.

I want to spool it so the spool file does not wrap. This way I can load the data into excel. The data keeps wrapping and when i import it, I get it wrapped in excel. its alot of columns. lines 5000 should be sufficient. I just don't have enough screen space for it all.
